Human Rights for Some—Indifference for Others

Human Rights for Some—Indifference for Others

My name is Vahid Razavi. I have been a member of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots for the past five years. During this time, my former 501(c)(3) organization, Ethics in Tech, was awarded multiple grants to produce content on behalf of the Campaign by its Steering Committee.

With the Campaign’s support, Ethics in Tech organized events featuring speakers including Nobel laureate Mary Wareham, Mines Action Canada director Erin Hunt, and numerous experts in the field of artificial intelligence and autonomous lethal weapons systems. In addition to hosting luminaries in the activist space, Ethics in Tech also incorporated headlining comedians as part of our unique approach to addressing some of the most existential issues of our time.

Our events—especially prior to the Covid-19 pandemic—were well attended and drew national and international media coverage, including from Japanese broadcaster NHK World.

I have always been a steadfast supporter of the Campaign’s mission of a world free from lethal autonomous weapons. When Israel launched its genocidal retaliation against the Palestinian people following the horrific October 7 attacks, I and a number of Campaign members implored the Campaign’s Steering Commitee to make a public statement against the use of AI-powered weapons in Gaza. As a human rights organization, I believed the Campaign would naturally condemn what thousands of internationally experts including one of Israel’s leading Holocaust scholars called a “textbook case” of genocide.

Alas, imagine my dismay and disappointment when the Campaign terminated human rights attorney Ousman Noor after he published a social media post condemning the Gaza genocide. In the wake of this most dubious decision, more than 2,000 human rights defenders signed an open letter in support of Mr. Noor. This resounding show of support went unanswered by the Campaign’s Steering Committee.

Was Mr. Noor just a rogue disgruntled employee? Hardly. Another staff member, the Campaign’s UK coordinator, subsequently accused the Campaign of racism. When multiple staff members accuse an organization of open racism and retaliation for taking a position against genocide, the organization’s value’s demand further scrutiny.

I have been warned, threatened with expulsion, and told to be silent while I witness an AI- driven genocide before my very eyes. Is the innocent blood of tens of thousands of men, women, and children being spilled in Gaza not worthy of the Steering Committee to act?

In response to backlash from Coalition members, the Steering Committee has resolved to rearrange the proverbial chairs on the deck of the Titanic. They will be conducting a survey of Coalition members in the weeks ahead. I submit that the Campaign must immediately publish a statement condemning, the genocide, by the  use of AI-driven systems utilized by Israeli occupation forces in their assault on Gaza.

Project Nimbus used Google and AWS cloud for machine learning, AI using facial recognition, and object tracking and targeting.

Red Wolf mass facial recognition training all over occupied territories for maintaining apartheid control of Palestinians.

Blue Wolf used on smartphones to capture facial details of Palestinian users.

Smart shooter used for AI and Automatic shooting of Palestinians throughout the occupied territories for “crowd disbursement.”

Finally, Gospel that is used to target over 200 journalists that have been murdered and maimed, sometimes along with their families, throughout Gaza.

The embedded video was an event that I participated in with Ousman Noor and fellow coalition member in regards to countering intimidation and retaliation in peace and disarmament in support of Palestinian human rights advocates.

As Gaza Burns, Injustice to One is Injustice to All – A Letter to Stop Killer Robots

As Gaza Burns, Injustice to One is Injustice to All – A Letter to Stop Killer Robots

Statement to call for accountability at Stop Killer Robots following the dismissal of Ousman Noor as Government Relations Manager, and for campaign statement on international law violations in Gaza and need for ceasefire.

Dear Steering Committee of Stop Killer Robots,

We, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with Ousman Noor, who was dismissed as Government Relations Manager at the Stop Killer Robots (SKR) campaign on the 27th October 2023 following his personal post on X/Twitter on the 14th October relating to the escalating violence in Israel-Palestine. His dismissal raises serious concerns regarding the Steering Committee’s (SC) implementation of SKR’s Vision and Values and commitment to an intersectional approach towards humanitarian disarmament, and we call upon the SC to take concrete and immediate steps to address these concerns.

As stated in the Notice of Termination, Ousman had performed this role for 3+ years with “dedication, commitment and skill” and his work was appreciated and respected across the SKR campaign coalition. The speed and severity of his termination, absent any disciplinary hearing, indicate that his dismissal was motivated by an effort to isolate him from the campaign, and to penalize him for expressing his views regarding the ongoing conflict.

Additional concerns are raised regarding the appeal process initiated by the SC. The termination of his employment prior to the appeal process, failure to disclose relevant documentation, and severance of access to his work account, all suggest a lack of procedural fairness and transparency. The public announcements via the campaign’s website, listservs and on social media platforms made by SC, in which it makes “categorical” claims regarding the termination, suggest that the SC has already concluded the outcome of the appeal prior to its completion. These claims further undermine the integrity of the appeal process.

Throughout this period, SKR has refused to make a statement regarding the need for a ceasefire despite the unprecedented level of violence being witnessed in Israel-Palestine. During this time, at least 20,000 people have been killed, mostly women, children and the elderly. 135 United Nations Staff— the highest number of UN fatalities recorded in a single conflict –other humanitarian aid workers, more than 300 medical personnel and more than 90 journalists and media workers have been killed. 85% of Gaza’s population has been forcibly displaced from their homes since the aggression began. UN experts have described these acts as “mass ethnic cleansing” and “a genocide in the making”. These atrocities have been committed in the context of a long standing occupation of a civilian population, in which one racial group dominates another through apartheid, a crime against humanity.

In addition, it is well known that Gaza and the West Bank have been the testing ground for some of the most advanced automated surveillance and warfare technologies before these are exported around the world. Human rights experts have noted that autonomous weapons systems have the potential to automate Israel’s uses of force and help entrench Israel’s apartheid against the Palestinian people. An investigation, conducted by +972 Magazine, raises the alarm over the use of Artificial Intelligence and automated technologies in the detection and selection of targets, used to kill civilians at an alarming rate, describing use of the “Habsora” system as enabling an “assassination factory”.

The SKR campaign has a published Vision and Values statement. In addition to concerns around the use of automated warfare technologies, these values include working to assist the vulnerable, and pursuing non-violent solutions to problems, using cooperation, negotiation, and activism to overcome systems of inequality and oppression. Given SKR’s professed commitment to these Vision and Values, it is alarming that the SC has not taken steps to issue a statement concerning these grave breaches of international law – and naming them as such – especially given reports that they are being aided through the use of automated warfare technologies.

The failure to issue such a statement, as well as the dismissal of Ousman as Government Relations Manager by the SC, point towards an underlying failure by the campaign’s leadership to abide by the campaign’s own Vision and Values. In addition, these actions suggest a failure to adhere to an intersectional approach to humanitarian disarmament, which requires recognition of the interconnectedness between layers of inequality and oppression, contributing towards power structures that favor certain protected groups over others.

In order to address these concerns, we call upon the SKR leadership to take the following immediate steps:

  1. To provide the remedies sought by Ousman in his Grounds of Appeal against termination, including to offer him reinstatement of his employment as Government Relations Manager for the campaign, and to provide him with relevant documents and access to his account to enable the fair conduct of his appeal.
  2. To provide the SKR campaign coalition members and the wider public with an honest, transparent and comprehensive explanation of how, why and by who, decisions were made leading to Ousman’s dismissal as Government Relations Manager for the campaign.
  3. To provide immediate and ongoing transparency in relation to the campaign’s sources of funding and affiliations.
  4. To institute mechanisms within the campaign structure to ensure responsiveness and receptivity to campaign organizations regarding the preparation and publication of relevant statements relating to conflicts around the world.
  5. To commit to a genuinely intersectional approach to humanitarian disarmament, recognising the interconnectedness between layers of inequality and oppression, contributing towards power structures that favor certain protected groups over others.
  6. To issue a statement, in accordance with the campaign’s Vision and Values, to condemn and challenge the ongoing violations of international humanitarian and human rights law in Israel-Palestine.

Bob SymondsBirmingham UKSpeaking out about the Palestinian situation is a courageous intervention given the support for Israel from countries in the West and their MSMedia’s. The use of AI weapon systems in this genocidal response to non-combatants is truly sickening and horrific, given the overwhelming military superiority of US/Israeli  weaponry and fighting forces. I am therefore surprised Ousman’s employers have removed him from his position, rather than supported his position, given the work he and his employers are engaged in? I trust Ousman’s appeal against dismissal is heard, investigated fully and is successful, in regard to reinstatement, adequate compensation, or both.

It is completely unacceptable that a person who is making a  personal statement about obvious crimes against humanity and war crimes should have his employment terminated. The irony that CSKR took this action would be laughable if it weren’t an exemplary employee’s job at stake, lost because he took the right stance on one of the clearest breaches of international law and basic human ethics since WWII.

Dhananjay PatilMumbaiI support Ousman Noor’s Appeal For remedies against unfair dismissal. Israel has been using AI & other advanced technologies in perpetrating this Genocide in Gaza. Osman Noor’s dismissal from ‘Stop Killer Robots’ for personal post meant to draw attention towards atrocities in Gaza is very antithesis of cause SKR claims to espouse.
“Reinstate Osman Noor & investigate who & why took decision to fire him im such highhanded manner! “.

Chance BerettaJacksonvilleIsrael is committing genocide and war crimes against Palestinians and all of Gaza where 50% of the population are children, i am a white American, and do not have a dog in this fight, but I am not too blind to see truth and through the Israeli lies and propaganda. God bless the children and the people of Palestine.

Corrupt elements must not be allowed to hold sway or parade their small ideas. They must be pushed to the margins of society. God has already guaranteed that truth will prevail. We just need to make a stand & take that first step. God is the guarantor that the criminals of this world will not get away.

Firing Noor undermines the the purpose and integrity of the Stop Killer Robots organization and campaign, which is heartbreaking given that now, as such systems are being deployed to horrifying effects, is the time where we need such organizing and expert resistance the most.

NoEthicsInBigTech.com Previously founder of Ethics In Technology a 501c3

 

Menlo Park, California

I have requested a statement in regards to Gaza from the campaign Steering Committee and Members since the start of this genocide, only to be told that I should be “warned” and “expelled” from the campaign. I have been told by a member of the Steering Committee that I should not raise questions in regard to Ousman’s termination from the group mailing list.

My previous organization Ethics In Technology a 501c3 received multiple grants from the campaign. For each grant we received we provided full transparency in how we used the funds.

Regrettably, the campaign has no transparency in regard to its own funding sources, steering committee’s action, and advisors.

The calls to condemn the genocide by Autonomous Weapon Systems and AI in Gaza and the occupied territories have fallen on deaf ears.

I support this open letter
Freedom of expression is more important than ever.
Justice for Palestine
Ceasefire Now
Submissions were sent to the International Criminal Court documenting the current war crimes in Gaza.
So, Be on the right side of history.
https://www.aa.com.tr/en/europe/israel-s-series-of-war-crimes-in-gaza-must-be-tried-in-international-criminal-court-uk-academic/3052264
We don’t need humanitarian organizations that repeat the same official narrative we see in governments and mass media. We need ONGs that are really supporting imperialism under the excuse of Human Rights to disappear. The double standard we see when crimes or just violent actions, or just political movements, by a Western enemy compared to the narrative when is an ally or a Western country committing crimes… it’s so evident for the people with a brain, so make as a favour and stop selling this genocidal propaganda as humanitarian
Ceasefire now
Zionism is racism.
Shame on an organization for the public to fire someone over speaking up for the oppressed! Oh wait, maybe you are the oppressors?!!!
I am surprised, and ashamed, considering your overall stated aims, that you do not emphatically call for a ceasefire to the genocide being carried out by Israel in Palestine.
Where is your humanity. There’s a genocide taking place
Total biased organisation
#ceasefirenow  ;  it is simple and the right thing to do
We demand justice!
Free Palestine
Stop the genocide against Palestinians!
End the genocide
Free Palestine
Anti Hypocrisy, Equal rights every human in this earth.
This is absurd!
Thank you for standing up for justice
Free Palestine!!
Fully support Usman.
What a hypocritical organization, Israel should be the main objective of its campaign, the state that most violates human rights, the one that uses non-conventional and new weapons in what is called the Palestinian laboratory.
I have not been historically aware of the organization Stop Killer robots or Ousman Noor. But I follow Timnit Gebru and trust that she shares accurate information online. Therefore I’ve taken a few minutes to educate myself this morning on Ousman’s dismissal and am therefore signing in support.
Good luck!

Statement to call for accountability at Stop Killer Robots following the dismissal of Ousman Noor as Government Relations Manager, and for campaign statement on international law violations in Gaza and need for ceasefire.

Dear Steering Committee of Stop Killer Robots,

We, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with Ousman Noor, who was dismissed as Government Relations Manager at the Stop Killer Robots (SKR) campaign on the 27th October 2023 following his personal post on X/Twitter on the 14th October relating to the escalating violence in Israel-Palestine. His dismissal raises serious concerns regarding the Steering Committee’s (SC) implementation of SKR’s Vision and Values and commitment to an intersectional approach towards humanitarian disarmament, and we call upon the SC to take concrete and immediate steps to address these concerns.

As stated in the Notice of Termination, Ousman had performed this role for 3+ years with “dedication, commitment and skill” and his work was appreciated and respected across the SKR campaign coalition. The speed and severity of his termination, absent any disciplinary hearing, indicate that his dismissal was motivated by an effort to isolate him from the campaign, and to penalize him for expressing his views regarding the ongoing conflict.

Additional concerns are raised regarding the appeal process initiated by the SC. The termination of his employment prior to the appeal process, failure to disclose relevant documentation, and severance of access to his work account, all suggest a lack of procedural fairness and transparency. The public announcements via the campaign’s website, listservs and on social media platforms made by SC, in which it makes “categorical” claims regarding the termination, suggest that the SC has already concluded the outcome of the appeal prior to its completion. These claims further undermine the integrity of the appeal process.

Throughout this period, SKR has refused to make a statement regarding the need for a ceasefire despite the unprecedented level of violence being witnessed in Israel-Palestine. During this time, at least 20,000 people have been killed, mostly women, children and the elderly. 135 United Nations Staff— the highest number of UN fatalities recorded in a single conflict –other humanitarian aid workers, more than 300 medical personnel and more than 90 journalists and media workers have been killed. 85% of Gaza’s population has been forcibly displaced from their homes since the aggression began. UN experts have described these acts as “mass ethnic cleansing” and “a genocide in the making”. These atrocities have been committed in the context of a long standing occupation of a civilian population, in which one racial group dominates another through apartheid, a crime against humanity.

In addition, it is well known that Gaza and the West Bank have been the testing ground for some of the most advanced automated surveillance and warfare technologies before these are exported around the world. Human rights experts have noted that autonomous weapons systems have the potential to automate Israel’s uses of force and help entrench Israel’s apartheid against the Palestinian people. An investigation, conducted by +972 Magazine, raises the alarm over the use of Artificial Intelligence and automated technologies in the detection and selection of targets, used to kill civilians at an alarming rate, describing use of the “Habsora” system as enabling an “assassination factory”.

The SKR campaign has a published Vision and Values statement. In addition to concerns around the use of automated warfare technologies, these values include working to assist the vulnerable, and pursuing non-violent solutions to problems, using cooperation, negotiation, and activism to overcome systems of inequality and oppression. Given SKR’s professed commitment to these Vision and Values, it is alarming that the SC has not taken steps to issue a statement concerning these grave breaches of international law – and naming them as such – especially given reports that they are being aided through the use of automated warfare technologies.

The failure to issue such a statement, as well as the dismissal of Ousman as Government Relations Manager by the SC, point towards an underlying failure by the campaign’s leadership to abide by the campaign’s own Vision and Values. In addition, these actions suggest a failure to adhere to an intersectional approach to humanitarian disarmament, which requires recognition of the interconnectedness between layers of inequality and oppression, contributing towards power structures that favor certain protected groups over others.

In order to address these concerns, we call upon the SKR leadership to take the following immediate steps:

  1. To provide the remedies sought by Ousman in his Grounds of Appeal against termination, including to offer him reinstatement of his employment as Government Relations Manager for the campaign, and to provide him with relevant documents and access to his account to enable the fair conduct of his appeal.
  2. To provide the SKR campaign coalition members and the wider public with an honest, transparent and comprehensive explanation of how, why and by who, decisions were made leading to Ousman’s dismissal as Government Relations Manager for the campaign.
  3. To provide immediate and ongoing transparency in relation to the campaign’s sources of funding and affiliations.
  4. To institute mechanisms within the campaign structure to ensure responsiveness and receptivity to campaign organizations regarding the preparation and publication of relevant statements relating to conflicts around the world.
  5. To commit to a genuinely intersectional approach to humanitarian disarmament, recognising the interconnectedness between layers of inequality and oppression, contributing towards power structures that favor certain protected groups over others.
  6. To issue a statement, in accordance with the campaign’s Vision and Values, to condemn and challenge the ongoing violations of international humanitarian and human rights law in Israel-Palestine.

Bob Symonds Birmingham UK Speaking out about the Palestinian situation is a courageous intervention given the support for Israel from countries in the West and their MSMedia’s. The use of AI weapon systems in this genocidal response to non-combatants is truly sickening and horrific, given the overwhelming military superiority of US/Israeli  weaponry and fighting forces. I am therefore surprised Ousman’s employers have removed him from his position, rather than supported his position, given the work he and his employers are engaged in? I trust Ousman’s appeal against dismissal is heard, investigated fully and is successful, in regard to reinstatement, adequate compensation, or both.

Janine Perlman As a person of Jewish heritage, like the great majority of the world I abhor the atrocities being visited on Gaza by Israel. It is completely unacceptable that a person who is making a  personal statement about obvious crimes against humanity and war crimes should have his employment terminated. The irony that CSKR took this action would be laughable if it weren’t an exemplary employee’s job at stake, lost because he took the right stance on one of the clearest breaches of international law and basic human ethics since WWII.
Salof Farabia Bucharest Given your NGO’s mission, I find it shameful how you dismissed Mr Noor. Instead of standing by him for his opinion which falls in line with your mission statement from what I understood, you proved bigotry and hypocrisy.

Saifullah Taj London A world where injustice runs rampant is not acceptable. Everyone must mobilise to establish truth & justice. Corrupt elements must not be allowed to hold sway or parade their small ideas. They must be pushed to the margins of society. God has already guaranteed that truth will prevail. We just need to make a stand & take that first step. God is the guarantor that the criminals of this world will not get away.

Finally, I condemn…employer Stop Killers Robots for their deplorable act!

Any organisations or individuals that support Israel’s aggressions in Palestine are indirectly or in some cases directly complicit in apartheid. Palestinians are being denied their human rights, they are being slaughtered, men, women and children. Never again then, not one day more now.

Firing Noor undermines the the purpose and integrity of the Stop Killer Robots organization and campaign, which is heartbreaking given that now, as such systems are being deployed to horrifying effects, is the time where we need such organizing and expert resistance the most.

It is only right that we speak up for those who have no voice, without the threat of baseless and meritless accusations and loss of jobs. The lack of balance, empathy, and kindness, the twisting of truth to frame a narrative that perpetuates mass assassination has broken the hearts of millions around the globe – whatever faith or no faith anyone has. For the good of the whole we must have an an end to the slaughter of innocent civilians who have nothing to do with the ugly side of politics and profit before people. There is plenty for everyone – no? What is wrong with wanting BALANCE for all of us? Why is that so hard for the ‘powers’ to accept and strive for! #CeaseFireNow and commit to finding a way through and stop this running round in destructive downward spirals that only seem to serve one purpose – divide and conquer, a tale as old as time. #TeamHuman #RightfulRights

Carolyn Lechusza Aquallo Free Palestine Free Palestine and stop the genocide of Palestinians. The UNSC’s abject failure has damaged it beyond repair and we are at a moral crossroads. We need to elect new leaders that represent the will of the regular people, that can govern wisely, and care for the populations they are elected to serve. The U.S.’s silence and aid of a genocide has created a national security threat and a moral voice. We have lost the last shred of credibility we had with the current administration’s absolute denial of a genocide. Biden, Blinken, McGurk, Sullivan, Austin, someone could have stood up and fought for the lives of over 10,000 massacred children. Someone could have had the courage to stop for a moment and risk their career to do the right thing. But no one was around to do that. Too busy, too tired, too invested in personal ambitions, too cowardly, too stupid, too smart, too low of a pay-grade. The entire administration and US Congress and media failed in this one moment to uphold the altered values that have been paraded around since the first genocide of the indigenous community and the second genocide of the African American community. A country of death spawns other proxy states of death like isra*l. The Palestinians have shown the world who wears masks of cowardice, greed, lies, and ego. We all do and we are all complicit.We can make the choice to continue with shame or take a stand and support Palestinian freedom.

Organisation

Organisation Location Comment
NoEthicsInBigTech.com Previously founder of Ethics In Technology a 501c3 Menlo Park, California I have requested a statement in regards to Gaza from the campaign Steering Committee and Members since the start of this genocide, only to be told that I should be “warned” and “expelled” from the campaign. I have been told by a member of the Steering Committee that I should not raise questions in regard to Ousman’s termination from the group mailing list. My previous organization Ethics In Technology a 501c3 received multiple grants from the campaign. For each grant we received we provided full transparency in how we used the funds. Regrettably, the campaign has no transparency in regard to its own funding sources, steering committee’s action, and advisors. The calls to condemn the genocide by Autonomous Weapon Systems and AI in Gaza and the occupied territories have fallen on deaf ears.

I support this open letter
Freedom of expression is more important than ever.
Justice for Palestine
Ceasefire Now
Submissions were sent to the International Criminal Court documenting the current war crimes in Gaza. So, Be on the right side of history. https://www.aa.com.tr/en/europe/israel-s-series-of-war-crimes-in-gaza-must-be-tried-in-international-criminal-court-uk-academic/3052264
We don’t need humanitarian organizations that repeat the same official narrative we see in governments and mass media. We need ONGs that are really supporting imperialism under the excuse of Human Rights to disappear. The double standard we see when crimes or just violent actions, or just political movements, by a Western enemy compared to the narrative when is an ally or a Western country committing crimes… it’s so evident for the people with a brain, so make as a favour and stop selling this genocidal propaganda as humanitarian
Ceasefire now
Zionism is racism.
Shame on an organization for the public to fire someone over speaking up for the oppressed! Oh wait, maybe you are the oppressors?!!!
I am surprised, and ashamed, considering your overall stated aims, that you do not emphatically call for a ceasefire to the genocide being carried out by Israel in Palestine.
Where is your humanity. There’s a genocide taking place
Total biased organisation
#ceasefirenow  ;  it is simple and the right thing to do
We demand justice!
Free Palestine
Stop the genocide against Palestinians!
End the genocide
Free Palestine
Anti Hypocrisy, Equal rights every human in this earth.
This is absurd!
Thank you for standing up for justice
Free Palestine!!
Fully support Usman.
What a hypocritical organization, Israel should be the main objective of its campaign, the state that most violates human rights, the one that uses non-conventional and new weapons in what is called the Palestinian laboratory.
I have not been historically aware of the organization Stop Killer robots or Ousman Noor. But I follow Timnit Gebru and trust that she shares accurate information online. Therefore I’ve taken a few minutes to educate myself this morning on Ousman’s dismissal and am therefore signing in support.
Good luck!
Thank you for standing up for yourself, your rights and the Gazans. God bless.
Supporting Mr. Ousman Noor becauce he is a very honourable man
Free Palestine from Israeli oppression & genocide
Speaking against a genocide should not cost your job.
Punishment for calling out an obvious injustice is abhorrent and shouldn’t be allowed. Look back through the decades of Israeli behaviour in regard to the Palestinian people and you’ll find nothing but crimes against humanity. If in doubt contact Israeli historian Professor Ilan Pappé.
Reinstate Ousmam Noor. His temination was unjust. The mission of SKR is to stop the misuse of robotic killer machines, as being used in Gaza and West Bank. I would like to see a complete stop to all killer robots.
Unacceptable and unfair dismissal
Keep going justice will preveal
This is absurd when people are terminated from work for speaking up for voiceless people and exercising their freedom of speech right.
damn joe biden, damn genocide, free palestine.
Peace & equality for everyone now
Imagine the possibility of robots used in Gaza. It might likely have happened… were they available. I agree with your fight against robots. But please consider the innocent, of all races and creeds.
Really admire Ousman and coalition members for standing up for what is right.
“God commands justice and fair dealing…”

Musician- Pete Kronowitt

If Steve Earle threw a margarita at Elvis Costello and got pissed enough to write political tunes, they would sound like Pete Kronowitt songs. Following in the footsteps of folk singers advocating to better humanity, Pete has organized, marched and sang his way across this land. Pete founded Face the Music Collective, a guide for creative activists utilizing performances to inspire targeted individual action, and is on the board of Music Declares Emergency US, a climate music industry nonprofit with a mission to activate fans.

Franchesca Fiorentini-

American Journalist, Correspondent, activist, and stand-up comedian. Host of Newsbroke and The Bitchuation Room Podcast.

Will Durst- Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together a comedy quilt of a career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice-overs, and most especially, stand up comedy, into a hilarious patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. His abiding motto is, “You can’t make stuff up like this.” The New York Times calls him “possibly the best political comic in the country.” Fox News agrees “he’s a great political satirist,” while the Oregonian hails him as a “hilarious stand-up journalist.

Ousman Noor studied law at SOAS: University of London, and social anthropology at the University of Oxford. He worked as a human rights barrister (lawyer) in London for 9 years, specializing in refugee and detention law, and taught as a Senior Teaching Fellow at SOAS. For 3+ years, He was Government Relations Manager at Stop Killer Robots, a coalition of 250+ NGOs from 70+ countries. Following a personal Tweet calling for an end to occupation, apartheid and ethnic cleansing in Palestine, his employment was terminated.

Kevin Welch is the president of EFF-Austin, a digital civil liberties organization founded alongside the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and continues to be a member of their Electronic Frontier Alliance (EFA). At EFF-Austin, he leads their push to educate the public and politicians about important legal and cultural issues confronting society in emerging technological spaces. He has spoken at diverse venues on these topics including at SXSW and at State Department. He is a Caltech graduate with degrees in Bioengineering and English.

Brett Wilkins is a San Francisco-based writer and activist whose work focuses on issues of war and peace, and human rights. He is a staff writer at Common Dreams.

Rev. Martin Todd Allen is an Associate Minister at the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples. Previously, Rev. Allen worked as a prison, hospital and military Chaplain and currently works as a hospice chaplain in the South Bay. In addition, he serves on the board of directors of The Human Agenda.

Bill Budington is a long-time activist, cryptography enthusiast, and a Senior Staff Technologist on EFF’s Public Interest Technology team. His research has been featured in the The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, and cited by the US Congress. He is the lead developer of Cover Your Tracks, led HTTPS Everywhere from 2015-2018, and has contributed to projects like Let’s Encrypt and SecureDrop. Bill has spoken at USENIX Enigma (2016), HOPE (2014, 2016, 2018, 2020, 2022), CCC (2017), InfoSec Southwest (2017), ShmooCon (2019, 2020), and other infosec conferences. Bill’s primary interest lies in dismantling systems of oppression, building up collaborative alternatives and, to borrow a phrase from Zapatismo, fighting for a ‘world in which many worlds fit.’ He loves hacker spaces and getting together with other techies to tinker, code, share, and build the technological commons.

Organizer, Host and Panel Discussions By:

The Responsible AI Community in Solidarity with Gaza and the Palestinian People

The Responsible AI Community in Solidarity with Gaza and the Palestinian People

As members of the Responsible AI Community, we believe that technology can serve and uplift society, but only if we are attentive to the harms and devastating impacts emergent from its development and use. We recognize the role of technology deepening and advancing discrimination, oppression, and state violence everywhere.

For these reasons, and from our full commitment to fundamental human rights, we unreservedly condemn the Israeli state’s latest violence against the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank. As a community of Responsible AI practitioners, researchers, and advocates, we also condemn the use of AI-driven technologies for warmaking, in which the aim is to make the loss of human life more efficient, and the instances in which anti-Palestinian biases are perpetuated throughout AI-enabled systems.

History did not start on October 7th, 2023, but the current crisis reflects the horrific scale and extent of violence enabled by the use of AI-driven technologies. In May 2021, Israel’s army launched what it called the world’s first “AI war” against the people of Gaza. Unit 8200 of the Israeli intelligence agency has been at the forefront of using undisclosed algorithms for military targeting within the occupied territories. In July 2023, Bloomberg reported the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) further embedded AI into lethal operations to “select targets for air strikes and organize wartime logistics,” including the use of an AI recommendation system to select aerial targets. The Israeli government’s use of AI-driven technology has led to strikes against over 11,000 targets in Gaza since the latest conflict started on October 7, 2023.

The Israeli technological-military complex predates the use of AI. It is underpinned by the intrusive biometric and surveillance technologies that laid the groundwork for exponential and expedited dehumanization of Palestinians that we see today. The NSO Group, developer of the Pegasus cyberwarfare software, has been found on the phones of human rights defenders worldwide. Moreover, facial recognition technology restricts freedom of movement across checkpoints, and tools like Smart Shooter automate killing by adding AI to automatic weapons at those checkpoints. These are the very technologies purchased and deployed by law enforcement forces elsewhere in the world to police marginalized and oppressed communities.

Beyond weaponry, algorithmic systems reify and exacerbate the dehumanization of Palestinians. Seemingly innocuous technologies have been weaponized against Palestinians. Recently, Meta’s tools translated Arabic Instagram biographies from “Palestinian, alhumduallah [Praise be to God]” to “Praise be to God, Palestinian terrorists are fighting for their freedom.” Meta-owned WhatsApp created AI-generated images of brown boys with guns when given the prompt “Palestinian.” And years ago, a Palestinian man was arrested at a border checkpoint when Facebook translated his profile message of “Good morning” to “Attack them.” These moments uncover how Islamophobic and xenophobic biases are embedded in the very design of our tech-facilitated media ecosystem.

Now, this decades long, tech-enabled apartheid and occupation of the Palestinian people has culminated in a “complete siege” of Gaza – the densely populated home to 2.1 million residents, of which 1.7 million are refugees, and half of whom are newborns and children. As reiterated by genocide scholars and human rights experts, this siege, bombardment and forced expulsion is tantamount to a genocide of the Palestinian people. To date (November 13, 2023), 11,078 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed, of whom 64% are estimated to be women and children.

As members of the Responsible AI community, we must reckon with the use of AI technology to commit such scales of violence and death that we are witnessing being carried out against Palestinians. We call on our community to demand that Western governments, international bodies such as the UN, and other actors who have influence in the international community push the Israeli government for an immediate ceasefire.

We also call on the technology companies we work with, and for, to:

  • Withdraw technology support to the Israeli government and cease defense contracts with the Israeli government and military;
  • Protect their employees, such as those at Google and Amazon who have called for an end to Project Nimbus and bravely demanded a ceasefire, from retribution and harassment; and,
  • Stop the direct, and passive, automated censorship of content revealing the plights of Gazans and Palestinians on social media platforms such as X/Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as these recordings and posts are one of the few ways we are able to support Gazans and Palestinians from near and far.

And finally, we call on all of our colleagues within the AI and tech sectors to stand in solidarity with Palestinians and call for an end to their siege, bombardement and occupation.

Concerned Activists and Hiroshima Bombing Survivor Host Virtual Discussion Night Sunday, August 6 th to Urge Concrete Actions Towards World Peace

Each year, many around the world acknowledge August 6
th as a solemn remembrance of the WWII bomb attack on civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

We are a collection of activists from the technology, business, and political spheres working for peace and civil liberties. We will host a Zoom event, “Harmony for Humanity” Sunday, August 6th, from 6pm to 8:30 pm Pacific time which is open to the public. Our
event will be focused not only on commemorating those who suffered and died due to the bombs but on current world conflicts and steps people can take, and can urge their leaders to take, to promote a peaceful world. Please sign up here.
This event is not financed, endorsed or supported in any way by any government, for-profit, or nonprofit corporation. It is 100% grassroots and supported by attendees.

This is not your Oppenheimer movie. For more information on this event visit NotYourOppenheimer.com This unique gathering brings together a diverse lineup of
talent, including four hilarious comedians, six inspiring speakers, and a captivating musician, all driven by a shared commitment to promote world peace.

Through laughter, thought-provoking discussions, and soul-stirring melodies, this event aims to create a space where the power of humor, ideas, and music converge to
facilitate important conversations surrounding nuclear disarmament and the preservation of human rights. Together we will explore the impact of the Hiroshima
bombing and its lasting consequences on both the survivors and the world at large.

Our incredible comedians will infuse the evening with laughter, using their witty and insightful humor to shed light on serious topics, break down barriers, and encourage meaningful dialogue. They will remind us that even in the face of adversity, laughter can
be a catalyst for change and an essential tool for healing.

Harmony for Humanity: Uniting for Peace on Hiroshima Day

Harmony for Humanity: Uniting for Peace on Hiroshima Day

This year’s theme for No Ethics in Big Tech’s—formerly Ethics In Tech—Hiroshima Day annual commemoration and panel is “Harmony for Humanity: Uniting for Peace on Hiroshima Day.”

Our lineup this year includes a diverse mix of speakers and comedians, promising a unique blend of comedy and discussion that makes No Ethics In Big Tech events a
one-of-a-kind experience.

Legendary political comedian Will Durst is on the mend and back in our all-star lineup, along with stand-up superstar, journalist, and activist Francesca Fiorentini,
the ever-uproarious Chloe McGovern, and cosmopolitan humorist Annette Mullaney, whose work in Big Tech seasons her always witty sets.Singer/songwriter/guitarist Michael Rufo—whose crafty lyrics skewer government
surveillance and current affairs—is our special musical guest.

On the speaker side, host and No Ethics in Big Tech founder Vahid Razavi has assembled one of our best panels yet. Author and Veterans for Peace activist Helen Jaccard will lead off a lineup that includes Rev. Dr. Dorsey Blake of the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples, Common Dreams writer Brett Wilkins, RootsAction founder Norman Solomon—whose latest book, War Made Invisible, is a must-read for all peace-lovers, José of the venerable Electronic Frontier Foundation, and our very special guest, atomic bomb survivor and Hiroshima: Bridge to Forgiveness author Takashi Thomas Tanemori.

“I am looking forward to meeting many of you,” says Tanemori. “It is wonderful that you are promoting peace. For me, I’m promoting peace through forgiveness.”
Always one of our more popular events, this year’s Hiroshima Day commemoration is all the more timely given the release of Christopher Nolan’s summer blockbuster Oppenheimer, a biopic chronicling the life of theoretical physicist and “father of the atomic bomb” J. Robert Oppenheimer. Being this is a No Ethics in Big Tech event, we won’t pull any punches like Hollywood inevitably does—although we stand in solidarity with striking writers and actors. As always, we’ll have a frank discussion about the history, current state, and future of nuclear weapons, which, arguably, now as much as ever represent an existential threat to humanity.

The world’s nine nuclear-armed countries—the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain, Israel, India, Pakistan, and North Korea—spent a combined $83
billion on their nuclear arsenals last year, with more than half of that amount attributable to the U.S. Instead of disarmament, the United States is spending tens
of billions of dollars modernizing and upgrading its nuclear arsenal. Another world is possible. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 for its work culminating in the landmark Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which now has 92 signatories and 68 state parties. However, none of the world’s nine nuclear powers have signed the treaty. But as United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres recently asserted, eliminating nuclear weapons is “not only possible, it is necessary.”

Guterres warning came amid heightened nuclear fears during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and nuclear threats from Russian leaders. The world hasn’t been this close
to nuclear war since the 1980s, when tensions between the United States and Soviet Union reignited to levels unseen since the Cuban Missile Crisis. According
to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock, we are closer to “midnight”—nuclear armageddon—than even during the dark days of the Cold War’s final decade.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Join us on Hiroshima Day, August 6, and let’s realize a better world together

Oppenheimer’s Movie, Humanizing the Inhumane

Let me share my thoughts on the movie Oppenheimer, which I attended on its opening night in Palo Alto at the 7:00 PM showing. As a disabled individual, I was assigned seat E2 and had to sit in the handicapped seat located on top of the theater, as using the stairs was not an option for me.

When I purchased my ticket online from the Emerson St theater  in Palo Alto, their website indicated that the movie was nearly sold out. However, upon arrival, I was surprised to see that the occupancy was only around 75% at best. This experience reminded me of how certain organizations manipulate ticket sales, such as the Church of Scientology’s bulk purchases of Tom Cruise movies or movie production houses giving away tickets for free reviews to create a buzz.

In my opinion, Oppenheimer glorifies individuals responsible for the creation of weapons of mass destruction. The film attempts to humanize their actions, which resulted in events such as Trinity, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and over 1000 nuclear tests in the US alone. Unfortunately, the movie fails to reflect on the impact these actions had on the victims of atomic blasts, the victims in Japan, the victims of nuclear energy accidents, or even the 1000 tests themselves. Ultimately, it is three hours of disjointed theater that overlooks the true consequences.

It is disheartening to think that our society, with over $800 billion spent on the military, has cultivated a generation fascinated by violence and technology, supporting movies like this. I have no doubt that it will receive awards, accolades, and generate significant streaming income. It seems both Hollywood and the tech industry excel at profiting from the war machine, essentially making blood money.

However, there is an alternative response to this movie. We are organizing an event to commemorate the anniversary of Hiroshima Day, which claimed the lives of 160,000 people. The event will feature a Hiroshima Survivor, as well as representatives from Roots Action, Common Dreams, Veterans For Peace, The Church of Fellowship of All People, and four talented comedians and musicians. Rather than glorifying individuals like Oppenheimer, our event aims to initiate meaningful discussions and even find humor in their inhuman actions. I invite you to join us for the Harmony for Humanity Hiroshima Day Event.

Please join us for the NotYourOppenheimer.com event on August 6th at 6:00 PM.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my review and invitation.

Sincerely,

Vahid Razavi

Mr. Tanimori
